At Christ Church Italian will be taught throughout KS2 on a weekly basis for approximately 30 minutes. Where possible links will be made to the learning challenges.
We consider the characteristics of children learning Italian to be:
· To read fluently
· To write imaginatively
· To speak confidently
· To understand the culture of the countries in which the language is spoken
· Opportunity to enrich children’s understanding of different cultures
· To experience visits from experts/language specialists/other professionals to give children a broader understanding

'I learnt the numbers up to 40, how to sing songs in Italian and some interesting facts. I also know how to say my name is and ask what your name is. I really enjoy learning Italian' Remy
